Interested in true Full Stack Web application development? Not just front-end and back-end coding but also integrated automation within a self-built cloud hosting environment?

A team of five engineers are seeking an application developer with experience across the PHP web stack to join them at an exciting time as they continue to grow and implement new technologies. They are a fully integrated managed service hosting company that not only build, automate and manage their client’s cloud services but also build web applications (largely corporate internal systems) to sit on top of the infrastructure.

They are a PHP Web stack environment that take on green field projects helping their clients move away from legacy systems. They build on the Laravel framework in OO PHP code using MySQL Databases. Right now, their front-end coding is functional – HTML / CSS / jQuery (it’s internal systems not flashy websites) but they are exploring new front-end technologies and are open to incorporating modern JS frameworks including Vue.js, React.JS and AngularJS (they have completed a recent project using React).

As a PHP Engineer you will not only experiment with modern JS frameworks but also, they use Docker, Chef and Puppet. You will learn about continuous deployment and modern DevOps practices.

Based in Taunton, with a friendly office dog (Tilly) and collaborative workplace environment built for a modern tech team. They will pay 35K to 45K plus a whole heap of benefits including Private Pension, Private Healthcare, UNLIMITED Holidays (yes – unlimited!) and partial flexible working / home working may be possible too for engineers with a longer commute (at least 3 days a week in the office required).

Responsibilities include:

• Engineering in the PHP Web Stack.

• Building new applications and migrating from legacy systems.

• Innovating on the technologies being used – Docker, PHP, Laravel, React.JS, VueJS.

• Taking responsibility over own work and problem solving.
